White blood cell count*

Hi all. I am not diagnosed, but my Drs. Have mentioned MS as a possibility. I just had more blood work done for my rheumatologist and the results came back showing a high white blood cell count.

"white out" vision

Hi everyone!  Just wondering if anyone experiences a total white blurring of vision.  This happens to me in just one eye.  It is almost like when I used to get a "fuzzy" on my eyelash which obscured my vision until I removed it from the eyelash.  The only thing is there is nothing on my lashes, no irritation to… Read More
